Good Samaritan


By: James Collins

While driving along Hwy. 385 in between Marathon and Fort Stockton, Texas, Danos Pipeline Locator Luis Ortiz spotted a distressed elderly couple roadside with a flat tire. Hwy. 385 is about 55 miles of desolate area with barely any cellphone reception.

When Luis pulled over to help, he learned that the couple not only had a flat tire, but the spare tire was inoperable as well. He decided to drive them to a spot with reception so the couple could call someone to bring them a tire. Luis stayed with them to make sure they had water and were taken care of until help got there.

This story came from one of our customer’s who called to let us know that Luis is “a good Samaritan and a good man.” We knew this already and this story is just another example of his great character.
